Time to get inspired, all. (The Seattle Times)
Seattle’s only brick-and-mortar umbrella store is closing. How does that make sense in a place that’s famous for its rain?

That’s what the National Weather Service in Seattle is calling the wet weather that started yesterday and should have us thoroughly soaked by Thursday. It’s “one long stretch of moisture a few thousands miles long that will be hitting us in the face,” Dustin Guy of NWS told The Seattle Times. Umbrellas — uh, we mean, raincoats up! 🌧
